rapidly the general assembly of the united nations will be meeting. it's anticipated that we are going to have a real problem with the palestinian authority suggesting that a palestinian state be recognized at the u.n. what are we going to do about that? what is the program the administration as it approaches the u.n. and this ongoing problem which has perceived a long way down the trail but is close at hand? >> senator, the administration has been very clear that all of us hope for a two-state solution in middle east peace. a viable palestine and secure israel with clear borders. we do not believe that a u.n. resolution will get us to that place. and the secretary of state and the president are doing everything they can to make it clear to the world that we think that this is not a positive step forward should a resolution come to pass. my understanding from the state department is that there has been a very broad and very vig russ -- every capital in the world that this is high on the agenda for every meeting the secretary has with every world leader. today i understand that both spe

morning at the united nations president obama shared with an international audience his commitment to israel's security in the midst of a challenging region and complex times. the administration approached this year's u.n. general assembly standing strong with our ally in many respects. from once again boycotting the antisem ethic activities surrounding the durban conference, to pledging to veto any palestinian unilateral declaration of independence in the security council, to working all summer with our partners and allies against the unending efforts to criticize and delegitimize israel at the u.n. president obama has been a stalwart ally of israel in this international forum. i'm so pleased that he continued in that vein this morning with his address to the general assembly. in his historic speech to this global audience, president obama once again demonstrated his stalwart support for our friend and ally, israel. importantly president obama used this opportunity at the united nations to unambiguously state his support for direct bilateral negotiations as the only way to solve the israeli-palestinian conflict and create a palestinian state. as the president said, a genuine peace can only be realized between the israelis and t

united states will veto this effort in the united nations security council, but the palestinians now plan to take their effort both to the security council, probably, but certainly to the general assembly where all the members of the united nations have a chance to vote. my guess is that the palestinians will get 140 or 150 nations who will vote for their becoming a state. this will not change the occupation of palestine by the israelis, and it will just make -- if the united states does veto the security council, then they will not become a fully recognized member of the united nations, but they will become an unofficial recognized observer, and this would give them certain access to membership in international organizations, and it would be a step forward. i would not be in favor of this if the united states had put forward any sort of comprehensive peace proposal. as president obama has announced on two major occasions, one a freeze on all israeli settlements inside palestine, and also, based on the 1967 borders -- if the united states had put forward that proposal as a basis for negotiation, then both the palestinians and the carter center would be in favor of peace talks based on those
